What to do with a rickshaw


So, I had to buy this of course and I brought it home all excited because when do you see rickshaw fabric?  It must be old because who would do that nowadays and then I started to worry that it might be culturally insensitive and now I am thinking that I won't be able to use it for anything.  Am I crazy? Or is it fine and I can make zippered pouches or whatever and no one will think twice about it?  What do you --my half dozen (I think, but maybe it is just five) -- readers think?

Geez, I don't know - the fact that it's a silhouette and not some kind of awful caricature makes it seem OK with me. I think it's pretty adorable fabric.

It's awesome fabric. It would make great zipper pouches and such. I can see why you'd be worried (cuz your such a good person and all) I but I think you would be safe in using this.

I've always wanted a rickshaw tie myself.

That would make a good tie--if only it were silk.
